Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice in the north London derby.

However the line-ups on Wednesday night are likely to be much changed for the teams who competed in the league.

Laurent Koscielny & Mesut Ozil

Both senior players are returning from injuries.

Ozil has been out for several matches with back problems.

Koscielny hasn’t played for Arsenal all season following an injury which forced him out of France’s World Cup winning squad.

Staying with senior Arsenal players, Petr Cech will probably start in goal for the Gunners in the Qarabag game.
